First Glance Film Festival

That's right, "Townies" is taking the Philadelphia-based First Glance Film Festival by storm, and we want you to be there! Make the trip to the "City of Brotherly Love" and see a movie that was described as "laugh-out-loud funny" by the Reading Eagle. Not convinced? Other rave reviews include, "it could have used more poop jokes," from Producer Gordon Holmes' mother, Janet Holmes. The gorgeous Painted Bride Theater is the venue for the film festival, and Neo-Pangea is hoping to pack the screening. Director/Producer Brett Bagenstose was quoted as saying, "What's interesting about this festival is that the winners are chosen by the audience... so we need to pack the theater and get them liquored up!"

And as if that excitement wasn't enough, Producer Gordon Holmes added, "We're so happy to have the opportunity to be in a festival so close to home, that we want to make it a bit of a happening. So, we're going to be giving away 'Townies' t-shirts, pins, posters, and other goodies. I tell ya, you don't get that kind of lovin' from the producers of 'The Passion of the Christ'."

"Townies" is the story Jake Slate, a pizza delivery boy/seven-year college student who has come to a crossroads in his life. Down one path lies the same friends, the same parties, and the same feelings of inadequacy. Down the other, a promising internship with a Fortune 500 company, a desk, a 401K plan, and a corporate handbook. In the end, Jake must decide if true happiness come from having what you want, or from wanting what you have?
